Hi,

I am wondering at what point in the process do plastic-wrapped (sleeved labels on some cans) gets removed… I have a few different people telling me that the plastic wrap gets removed via a solvent, and some that say it gets removed out in the smelter.

Do you know the answer?

Thanks!

I’m wondering about that too. Those plastic beer labels, which are used by breweries for small batches, are hard to remove and would cause considerably more pollution, if melted down with the mrtal
